The up-to-date Chrome browser on my Android 4.x tablet does not support addons. ( Which appears to be on purpose to protect ad-revenue and business models if I am not mistaken. For that reason for anything μblock/ABP/Ghostery I can only use Firefox, which allows all of that...)

Since Chromium is at least basically/mostly open-source...

Are there any stable alternatives, meaning: Chromium-based browsers with add-on support?

(of common Chrome plugins, not something deeply excotic, following its own ‘standards’...

— or is that anyway impossible, because some add-on related stuff is closed source in Chrome?)

    Not sure about the backends used – but be welcome to take a look at my list of Android Web Browsers to narrow down your search, while waiting for good answers ;) – Izzy Jul 7 '16 at 16:29
  • why not just use Firefox? – Display Name Jul 8 '16 at 2:57
  • I do use Firefox for precisely this reason, but for certain purposes (and certain plugins) it would be so much nicer to still have that choice. – Frank Nocke Jul 12 '16 at 7:53
